He asked:

“Hello everyone! This is my first time of writing JAMB. I score 161, and my applied institution’s cut-off mark is 180. Please what can I do? Help a sister. Or I must wait for another year to write another exam?”

The university cut-off mark in Nigeria is the minimum mark a school expects applicants to score in the JAMB UTME.

One of the advisers in the group told her that it was possible for her to still be admitted into the university with the mark she scored.

Candidate loses SIM used to register for UTME

Meanwhile, a JAMB candidate said he lost the SIM card which he used to register for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

He said he has been unable to check his JAMB UTME result because he does not have the phone number he used to register.

He shared his experience in a Facebook group to get advice on how to access his UTME result, which according to him, is not on the JAMB portal.

JAMB has explained that the only way to check the UTME result is through SMS codes.
